Oklahoma Museum of Popular Culture (OKPOP) Launches New Website
OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. -- The Oklahoma Historical Society has created a new website for the Oklahoma Museum of Popular Culture (OKPOP). The web address is www.okpop.org. The site features information about the proposed museum, including location, operations, content and collections. Visitors will be able to contribute collections to the museum, participate in programs and learn about hundreds of Oklahomans who have impacted popular culture, both nationally and internationally.
Stories featured in the museum will include movies, radio, television, illustration, literature, theater, Wild West Shows and Route 66—all connected to a sense of time and place through the language of music. The website will share these stories and keep visitors updated on OKPOP progress, press and events.
When constructed, the OKPOP will be a 75,000-square-foot, four-story building dedicated to the creative spirit of Oklahoma's people and the influence of Oklahoma artists on popular culture around the world. Pending approval from the Oklahoma Legislature, the OKPOP Museum could open as early as 2018.
